6:41 am
all for this time of year. 69 in quantico. manassas, temperature for you you, 61 degrees. highs later today, only in the upper 70s. that won't be too bad. here is your few if you are cast and put it in motion for you, 4:00 this afternoon. you can see the sporadic nature of the shower and thunderstorm ask at this time. a decent chance we'll see some in the forecast later today. it becomes a little more widespread by 9:00, 10:00 tonight. it is a frontal system that will be pushing through. best chance really in the past couple of days that we'll see some showers and thunderstorms today. they will return again tomorrow. here we are tomorrow at 6:00. we'll see if we don't see some more showers and thunderstorms fire up out there. i think much of the day should be dry for you but the showers and thunderstorms will return later today. 79 your daytime high. plenty of clouds.

we have another video submission today. this one is from a 7-year-old anna romani. here is anna's question. >> i'm anna romani from mclean, virginia and i have a question for the weather guy. how come, in florida, there is nice, clear, ocean water and it is good for snorkeling but in places like virginia beach and north carolina along the -- and places along the east coast have murky water and it is not good for snorkeling? >> that is a great question. i love the video sub migs. i want to work on getting her just a little bit more in the picture. here is the bottom line. drum roll, please. your answer is right here. right there. there he is. >> plankton. >> it is all about plankton.
6:44 am
the finest character on spongebob. is a maddening character. the bottom line is this. it is all about water temperature. i'm really simplifying things here. water temperature being nutrients, being plankton and a lot of life and what happens is the currents, the process is called upwelling where the currents grab nutrients from the surface floor, the ocean surface, the bottom and bring them upward. >> that makes it cloudier. >> that makes it cloudier. >> more brackish. >> it brings up parts of the earth so you get a more mad -- a more murky look. in florida, the water is warm at the surface but it is cold as you get farther down. that causes a condition where we don't get much upwelling or
6:45 am
that institute aren't mix and therefore, you don't see the sort of cloudy conditions. the sun's rays are able to get farther down into the surface beneath the surface of the water. >> so more life, the murkier. the clearer, less life. >> a little counter intuitive. >> not bad actually. >> not bad at all. >> it doesn't mean it is dangerous. >> no, no, no. i have to hurry this along. but the institute rents play an incredibly important role in providing life to all the -- but the nutrients play an incredibly important role in providing life to all the ocean. if you have a question, go to and click on the weather tab. let's check in with julie wright. don't you love that music? >> i did. i was you sitting here dancing during the whole thing. on the roads, you will find
6:46 am
lanes are open on the top stretch of the roadway between college park and bethesda. we are headed west. lanes are open, easy drive so far south on 95 at 295 coming in out of laurel. northbound 95 in virginia. slow going past woodbridge up to the springfield interchange so allow bay good 25 to 30 minute commute on northbound 95 in virginia. lanes are open coming inbound along 66 leaving business 34 in manassas. that's a check of your fox 5 on-time traffic. >> thank you. on any given day, traffic around here is pretty bad ysm so say the least. when you add several thousand people into the mix, things get even worse. just ask anyone around congressional country club and our dave ross is there for the first day of the u.s. open to talk traffic. >> good morning, dave. >> good morning. talking about people.
6:47 am
how about 50,000 people. that is how many people are expected to be here today and every day for the next four days at congressional country club. so how in the world is the traffic going to be okay this weekend? well, to help talk about that is captain thomas didone of the montgomery county police. thank you so much for joining us today. we talked about this, 50,000 people a day. how are we going to try to keep these things as schism as possible. >> lots of planning and lots of shuttle buses we have over 108 shuttle buss that have complete row degrees. they are air conditioned and they're convenient. they will drop you off so you can get immediate access. >> you mentioned to me about the shuttle buses and the poshts of getting on the same one that gets you here to get you back. >> it is truly critical. we have so many different locations. you have to make sure you match up where you got off is where you get back on. >> i guess the key message is
6:48 am
be patient. we know it will be -- it is gridlock normally anyway but when you add 50,000 people a day, have some patience with the whole thing. >> we have a good traffic plan. we have plenty of traffic officers out there. but you have to expect that there will be delays. please use the shuttles. the shuttles are key. they will get you in and out faster than trying to find a place to park down here. once you're down here, the idea is to just enjoy the park and realize when you get home, the shuttles will take you there. >> so far this week leading into today, but no real problems leading up to today, correct? >> we had some back-ups on river road earlier because of the beltway. but we were able to work through that. we are on top of it. everything that we can plan for, we have a plan and we have experienced people out on the roads to make the changes as needed. >> can you enjoy any of the golf? >> not as much as i would like to. but this is the super bowl of golf and we're proud to have it

6:51 am
you have the people hub. they have xbox live for gaming. >> with all of this, you have me thinking about the battery because my phone, the battery drains. what is the deal with the battery here. about how many hours can you get? >> i'll get on an average day of really using this phone, 20, 4 hours of real-time use. >> let's turn on the iphone. how long about does an if own get in comparison? >> i would say that my experience was that i got three, four, five hours on my iphone. there is another big difference. not just as i'm finding three or four times longer battery out of gate but the battery is replaceable so can i pick this up being take the back off and stick another battery in had means i can buy a second battery and carry that thing around. >> that is very cool. let's talk bay little compare and contrast -- let's talk about a little compare and contrast.
6:52 am
with the android, there are a lot of apps. but they are a lot less regulated. what is the deal there? >> the iphone market is a heavily governed marketplace. apple and iphone review every app that goes up. on the android, there are marketplace and they are not as well governed. a dozen or so appear indications had to be yanked off the phones because they were actually viruses or malware. the microsoft marketplace is also a governed marketplace just like the apple one. for instance, when we as developers do our work, we submit it to the marketplace. they review it and approve it and mace it out there. the negative of that is there are a lot less right now on the microsoft marketplace. the marketplace has been open for about six months. i think there are about 15,000 appear indications and they include a lot of things you are looking for like yelp and e-bay
6:53 am
